Great score! Looking forward to the stories and antics that come with.

If you don’t mind, would you please share pics of the custom seat brackets? How is the headroom (How tall are you). I have SPGs mounted in my race car, had to bot them to a plate fabricated in place of the sliders, I dont have enough headroom, my helmet hits the inside of the top. I’m a short guy though, so it could be that seat was further forward, therefore higher.

Amazing car and an great story. The only thing I would do differently is that I would like RSR finish on the wheels. Then it would be perfect.

@infraredcalvin I should have taken pics when I pulled the seats out to do the harnesses, here's a pic "in car" but admittedly it's kind of a crap picture. The recaro's have bolts to attach up on the sides, so essentially they did a massive "L" on each side cut slightly to the seat shape, it then L's under and they put the stock seat slides on the bottom:

As far as headroom goes, I'm 5'11'' and it's no problem at all, I'll have to pop a helmet on and see if it's banging the roof. In terms of leg room I have to actually move the seat forward a bit more than I do in my other 914 with Konig's but those have a lot thicker padding in them.

Yeah I struggle a little with the monochromatic look of the car right now and the fully polished Fuchs are a bit much. In person I like it much better than in pictures. Someone posted pics of Fuchs re-done by Al Reed recently in an RSR type finish and they were pretty fuching amazing (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

I agree with @falcor75; the RS finish on those wheels would be freakin' amazing. But I confess I have never been a fan of polished Fuchs. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Agree, there's something magical about the finish someone just posted that Al Reed had done:

I agree with the above - I think the only thing I'd do is the RS finish on the Fuchs. Spending other people's money is fun....

Wasn't gonna say anything, but since you did…I'll confess I struggle with the monochromatic look, also. This 914 reminds me so much of Ernie King's 3.8, which was silver with the same flares and overall look but had the targa bar in black vinyl with a stock roof for some contrast...and it was perfection on the same 16-inch Fuchs you've got but with black centers, plain black center caps, and toned-down polish.

There's also a silver GT running around Europe on 15x7s (or 8s) up front and 15x9s in the rear wearing Michelin TB rubber or something similar, and it looks insane—once again with the period correct vinyl targa bar and black top. But I am not sure I could give up your brakes with the engine you've got!

Whatever. You have plenty of time to make this 914 yours. The best thing you can do for now is live with it and enjoy it!
